Blockchain enabled hotel booking platform, Travala.com, has recently announced it has entered a partnership with Bitcoin.com. Together, Travala.com will begin offering its four million users the chance to save money when booking through its platform.
Travala has been transforming the travel industry by offering an average of 15% off on hotel bookings as well as the option to pay with 15 leading cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Bitcoin Cash. The team said that the “new partnership will empower millions of users to participate in a cheaper, fairer, and more inclusive travel economy”
Commenting on the partnership, Travala.com CEO and Founder Matthew Luczynski said: “A reflection of our unwavering commitment towards cryptocurrency adoption, we’re excited to partner with an industry titan to champion the growth of the crypto community. With over 80% of the bookings on our platform made chiefly in digital currencies, the partnership will allow us to leverage Bitcoin Cash’s global network for greater real-world usability. We are excited to work closer with the Bitcoin.com team.”
“Importantly, this is also a powerful demonstration of the synergies between both the travel industry and disruptive technologies, as we strive to significantly lower the barriers of entry. The past year has seen our team achieve a number of milestones, from having recently exceeded our equity crowdfunding target to the steady growth of our ecosystem. We look forward to seeing even greater progress as we build a transformative future for the online travel industry,” added Luczynski.
